2:00 AM

Waking up at 2:00 AM is demoralizing. Too awake to sleep; too sleepy to begin the day.

Actually, rather than staying demoralized, I suddenly remember reading of first sleeps and second sleeps. Throughout history, peoples of various societies have awakened during the night - I'm guessing for an hour or so - and this time has been highly prized as a time of peacefulness, tranquility, and even creativity. And here it is, in Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Segmented_sleep

My plan is to highly prize this as a time of ice cream. And as a time of Red Eye, with Greg Gutfeld, on Fox News Channel.
